On 15th September 2005, the smock mill at Chislet was destroyed in a fire, and the site ended up being completely cleared. A property developer, Colin Algar of C&AContractors bought the site, and since January 2011 has been building a new 4 bed house on the site, including a mock mill that approximates to the original. The new mill building is steel framed, but is wood clad to appear to have more traditional construction.
